Interesting stats from Learn Direct

There are over 130,000 drivers working in over 6,000 UK bus and coach companies today. The majority of these companies are owner / driver businesses with less than 10 employees.

Also re-iterates the point about new EU directives coming into force:-

"A new EU Directive comes into force on 10th September 2008, which states that new PCV drivers will need to gain a Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) as well as the PCV licence. It is known as the Driver CPC. Existing PCV drivers will be able to gain the CPC through periodic training."

Learn Direct has a great site which details everything you need to know on becoming a bus / coach driver or a road transport manager.
